atomkraft? nein danke!

On my way to the train I always pass this house which has an Atomkraft? Nein Danke flag in its backyard. It is kind of odd to see this flag in a backyard in New Jersey since I've only known them from Germany. It reads Nuclear Power? No thanks. Guess that means there are other Germans living in the area...

It reminded me of my childhood, more so the mid eighties after Chernobyl. There were a lot of demonstrations against the dependency on nuclear power after that.

Makes me want to get my power through a provider that supplies energy generated from renewable energy sources. After consulting Google for only a couple of minutes I found this, have to really do more research on that subject...

Just wanted to share my flag sighting ;)



  1. These buttons and stickers made a "comeback" this spring over here...
    Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I guess what happened at Fukushima brought back the awareness on the dangers of atomic energy.

    Should really ask my sister to send me one of those buttons...
